I have a problem with the marker giving the test taker a zero for question 2. I suppose the answer they were looking for was 'amateur', but if I were the marker, 'noob' would get a mark. Newbie is in the Merriam-Webster dictionary! Although, I suppose that means that I would also have to accept 1n7013r4nc3 for question 4.

This test is full of great answers!
2. List 5 ways (or more) that animals interact with each other:
- eat each other
- fight each other
- talk to each other
- chase each other
- do each other
3. List 5 ways plants interact with each other
I've never heard a plant say anything either...
4. Where do plants get energy?
5. What happens to that energy?
For question 4 & 5 it looks like both the test taker and the marker gave up.

Here we have another great essay from out friend Peter Nguyen.
My favorites quotes are:
My favorites quotes are:
- "He, and his three trusty crewmates, Maria, Santa Maria and Tupac..."
- "...but it wasn't until he tried to return to America that the real nightmare began..."
- "The monkeys, amazed at the human's intelligence, refused to believe that there was an entire land of intelligent human..."

The writing's a little small, here's what it says:
Test taker: "The panda will cry if I get a bad grade (just keep that in mind, do it for the panda!)
marker: BOO HOO Cheer him up by studying for the final.
Failed negotiation, but a great comeback by the marker.

This is an interesting specimen. Let's recap, Chris manages to get a 0, incriminate himself and deny the Holocaust (which he spells wrong) all in three sentences! It would have been better if he didn't do the assignment and smoked another one instead.

I love this one. Peter writes an excellent example of what Zero Out of Five is all about; if you do not know the answer, make it up. I find it interesting that Peter decided to make up something rather than write about someone real. This is remeniscent of 2 Girls, 1 Cup, 0 Marks.
I love how Peter talks about the "President of Japan" and how later in the essay he mistakingly (or on purpose) refers to Japan as China. I love the marker's comment when Peter writes that Hitler was right behind "Jimmy McPerson".
"If Jimmy was forgotten by History, how do you know about him?" that's a classic comment.

This student has huge guts, but the film review is written very well, despite this, the marker still gave the student a 0! What the hell? If you don't know what "2 Girls 1 Cup" is, I STRONGLY suggest that you DO NOT search for it on the internet. I'm being absolutely serious here, once you've seen it, you cannot unsee it.
